    But we havent figured out how to conquer this whole commitment thing.There are no formulas to memerize,no maps to follow.Although it seemed like we were on our generationslong agoWhen our forfathers get the the standard with friutful,life long relation even through the most adverse circumstanes.
    Lately it seems brothers done an about face to the pointwhere some are hitting you and are still living with there momma.Because they have not overcome thier fear of committing.Don't get me wrong were this fear is not paralizing.All consuming kind of fear.Were still game for chase.But many brothers suffer from an uneasy kind of fear,brought on by a feeling of helplessness. Like the feeling you get on the streets at night not knowing whats going to jump out at you .Uncertain aboutwhats lurking aroud the corner.It's that uncertainty that mystery that atracts us to a woman.But it also makes us weary of becomming too close to them.We hate what we don't know about committed relationship.We heard enough stories consoled are closes friends to know that when a man become to deeply involed with a woman uncertainties are abound.
